National Museum of Anthropology
Opened in 1964 following plans by Pedro Ramirez Vazquez, the huge National Museum of Anthropology is a very appropriate framework for a collection of pre-Columbian findings enjoying worldwide fame. What impressed me most was the enormous central courtyard, which is almost entirely covered by an aluminum roof 84 meters long held by a column of 11 meters. It is believed that this is the largest concrete structure in the world supported by a single column. Inside, there are many pieces of jewelry, but if I have to point out my favorites, I would start with the Sun Stone, erroneously called Mayan Calendar, the reconstruction of the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the tomb of Pakal in Palenque.
